  • You Should Have Basic Understanding of Warehouse Terminology and Processes

The warehouse continues to play a key role in every organisation's supply chain. Managers can benefit greatly from a better understanding of just what this role entails, and how it directly affects business. Because it's vital that finished goods be held in close proximity to the point of consumption, many warehouses have evolved beyond simple storage facilities to provide fulfilment, sortation, and consolidation services as cross-docking and transshipment centres.

This course was designed based on the instructor's real-world knowledge and experience, gained through hands-on operations. It will enable you to improve your warehouse procedures as a whole, by teaching you the basic principles of warehousing, and by examining both the current challenges and future advances associated with warehouse management. You'll learn effective methods for increasing productivity, reducing costs, improving customer relations, maintaining employee health and safety, and mitigating negative environmental effects.

By completing this course, you'll be armed with the valuable and practical skills you need to improve both your personal performance as a Warehouse Manager, and the overall performance of your company's warehouse as an integral part of the supply chain. You'll know how to increase the efficiency, productivity, quality and accuracy of your warehouse procedures. You'll understand key elements such as choosing the right technology, storage, and handling equipment, as well as effective workforce management and evaluation methods. You'll also understand the significance of improving health and safety, and reducing adverse environmental outcomes. And finally, you'll know how to use outsourcing opportunities to effectively fulfil warehouse functions.

Who is the target audience?
  • The course is for beginners and intermediate professionals involved in the day-to-day operations of a warehouse.
  • The course is for students who are considering career in warehousing and logistics.
